In response to the tragic murders of Ashley Okland & Beverly Carter, over 350 agents have signed a new “Realtor Safety Pledge” as a promise to limit behaviors that might put agents in harm’s way. Today, award-winning real estate coaches Tim & Julie Harris talk about what the Realtor Safety Pledge really means, how it’s likely to affect the industry, and whether or not it’s likely to work.

Staying safe is the job of every real estate professional, and while agents applaud the concept of the Realtor Safety Pledge – created by Century 21 broker-owners Dylan de Bruin and Joe Schafbuch – they’ve also expressed concerns about whether taking a pledge simple opens the door for unfair (and unsafe) competition. We’re going to break down how the pledge affects you, and how you can stay safe in today’s real estate marketplace.
